Puma Properties LLC was founded by Staten Island, NY local, Gerard Graci, with the goal of offering property buyers, sellers and investors a personalized and comprehensive “Client-For-Life” service. Recognizing that the single biggest asset & American Dream for most people is the family home, finding an accredited Realtor with local knowledge, experience and integrity is paramount, especially during uncertain economic times.

A carpenter-craftsman by training, Gerard started his real – estate career as the manager of Puma General Contracting Inc, which assisted in the acquisition, development and rehabilitation of residential properties throughout Staten Island and Brooklyn. Gerard later became a mortgage consultant for a prominent international brokerage, managing over 80 loan originators and structuring multi-million dollar developments and real estate investor packages.
